BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
We understand farmers see themselves as caretakers of the land. This connection with the environment is an important part of who we are as New Zealanders. Our Tiaki programme is here to support farmers with the resources they need to continue to manage and maintain our environment for generations to come.
BETTER FOR BUSINESS
While initially our focus is on the natural environment and particularly water, the ongoing sustainable management journey will encompass all aspects of good management practice on farm.
BETTER FOR THE COMMUNITY
Sustainable practices will help meet the increasing expectations of the communities our farmers are an integral part of. By caring for our surroundings, everyone can continue to enjoy our world-renowned natural environments.
BETTER FOR THE CO-OPERATIVE
As a responsible co-operative, sustainable dairying is core to our strategy to deliver long term value. The demand for sustainably produced goods is increasing in both local and international markets. This is driven by the changing awareness of consumers. Embracing a sustainable approach is a genuine opportunity for domestic and export growth. That’s good for farmers and New Zealand.
